Over the past year and a bit, many people weren’t able to get tattoos with parlors closed around the world due to the pandemic. But now that things are reopening and people are going out again, they’re starting to get new body art and we’re seeing some trends emerging just in time for Summer 2021. Instead of color, which we’re used to seeing, we’re getting lots of black and attention to detail. Check out these three trends before you head out for your next tattoo.

Blackwork Tattoos

Blackwork tattoos like the name implies, use black ink that drawn in bold patterns and takes up lots of negative space. The beauty of these tattoos is they wear well over time and they pack statement.

Fine Line Tattoos

Fine line tattoos are nothing new, but they’ve become more popular once celebrities started getting them. They feature straight or curved thin lines that are detailed without color, shade, or 3D objects.

Gray Shading Tattoos

Black and gray shading tattoos can be simple or complex, but what they have in common is they’re all about shading. The shading makes for a 3D effect that really jumps off the skin.
